Youth Group

Rooted – High School Ministry [9th-12th grade]

Sunday nights | 6pm-8pm

Thrive- Middle School Ministry [6th-8th grade]

Wednesday nights | 6:30pm-8pm

Our youth come from the surrounding towns to dig deep into God’s Word. Our aim is to give students a deep foundation in their faith, equipping them as they go into adulthood to both withstand the pull of the world and to make disciples themselves.

Bring your bibles. Bring your friends. Prepare to grow close to Christ.

Sunday School

Sunday mornings | 9am-10am [6th-12th grade]

We study the Bible, ask questions, and spend time together as we grow as disciples of Christ.

Bring your bibles. You are going to need it.

Purpose Statement:

Discipling youth so that they may relate with God through the Bible, listen to the Holy Spirit, live out God’s ways in community, to develop and continue in their relationship with Christ through knowledge and works for the rest of their lives.

(Colossians 1:9-14)

9 For this reason also, since the day we heard this, we haven’t stopped praying for you. We are asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, 10 so that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, so that you may have great endurance and patience, joyfully 12 giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the saints’ inheritance in the light. 13 He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son he loves. 14 In him we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
